Become a MHPA-Mental Health Peer Advocate!
Thank you for your interest in the Mental Health Peer Advocate (MHPA) program! MHPA is a student outreach group designed to facilitate the connection between EKU students and the Counseling Center. Through this outreach program, enthusiastic and dependable EKU students have the opportunity to share important information about mental health issues and the services provided by the Counseling Center to the EKU student body. Each fall semester undergraduate students from all majors with a passion for mental health are invited to apply to the MHPA program. Members should expect to allocate a minimum of 1hr a week to MHPA-related activities (this includes the weekly general body meetings). We invite all interested students to apply, regardless of Counseling Center client status. Applicants should have a general understanding and knowledge base about mental health issues specifically as it pertains to college age students. MHPA members will be responsible for developing (with assistance from EKUCC Coordinator of Community Intervention) and executing outreach programs and presentations that will:
- Promote emotional well-being among the student body
- Raise awareness regarding college mental health issues
- Provide education and resources
- Provide a link between the Counseling Center and student body
- Increase awareness among students about services available to them
INTRESTED? APPLICATIONS FOR 2021-22 SEMESTERS ARE LIVE NOW.
If you have any further questions, call the Counseling Center (859-622-1303) or email Paul Morgan, Coordinator of Community Intervention, at Paul.Morgan@eku.edu
